Ten Picture Posts are installed around Roger Williams Park with different purposes depending on location. First, posts are installed overlooking specific green infrastructure installations to document changes to vegetation and sedimentation over time. These photos provide us with information on the frequency of maintenance that is required to keep the structures functioning. Second, posts are installed near ponds known to be affected by algal blooms in order to visually document their timing and extent. Find the location of Picture Posts within Roger Williams Park in the map below.
